The MidPointe Library is
fortunate to have tremendous support from many local partners. One such ally is
Cincinnati Children’s, who is partnering with MidPointe Library to support
specially developed storytimes to focus on healthy living. Both the Hospital
and Library share a common mission to encourage early literacy and improve
kindergarten readiness, and as both entities strive to make sure all local
children are meeting or surpassing their age appropriate reading milestones, this
partnership is valuable for the community they serve together.
Every fourth Friday
MidPointe Library Storytime at Liberty Center is sponsored by Cincinnati
Children’s and attendees can enjoy storytime lead by MidPointe’s trained staff,
special programming, giveaways, games and more, all designed to encourage
health and early literacy for local youngsters and their families.
On Friday, January 27, at
11:30 AM our “Stay Healthy Storytime” will focus not only on early literacy
skills, but also introduce lessons on steering clear of germs during cold and
flu season (all designed to engage and educate little ones). This month’s program
will feature a special guest as Dr. Patricia Chambers reads a story. Dr.
Chambers has been a Pediatric Emergency Medicine Doctor in the Emergency
Department at Cincinnati Children’s for almost 13 years. She lives in West
Chester with her husband and three children.
“We love reading! As
a family, we have books everywhere. We love to pick books together and
talk about what we have read,” says Dr. Chambers, “Reading to young children
provides a foundation for loving books and learning about our world.”
